nwtrrfll So»rv Balklias 

' The incident which happened in one <»f TOT city courts, a few days 
ago had a ureal aignitii'aiice. as far as the Colored people are eon- 
eerued The act of one of the ("it-rutt .lodge* in excluding Negroe*. 
from his eoiirt room during a public Hearing, was inexcusable and 
earn only he amounted -for by .the fact that the .Judge, waa actuated 
b.V prejudice. 

Admitting that some of the Negroes were disorderly, or were 
moved hysom.K-.Bnd wept ; just ire, a» seen by this judge, deoreed that 
. all the Negroes in-Jils^s^r/Tjwiii should- be punished on account of 
the act* ..f a few. We, wonder if the .Judge -alls that justice, we 
atrmter if* thai is the. end of his judicial conception of justice, or was 
he dwurjVd by prejudice, hi cither ease it is dangerous. 

A Judge, who is to administer the law. one who ia put by the peo- 
ple into high and exalte*! position*, should lw> a man above doing 
"little thiniM," lie should forget petty prejudiee. "Biit'Can the 
I^r.pard Change Hi* 'Spots**' . 

It will be remembered that only a few yearn ago thin same Judge, 
when he presided over one of the city's police courts, allowed hia 
prejudiee to show itself to the humiliation of the N'egro. It was 
Judge Carl Kimmel who ordered "Jim-crow" sign* put up in his 
court room at that time. It will also be rememttered that UcB^fleo. 
P. Weinbrenner was City Marshall at that time, and it was "lie who 
refused to allow the Segrocs to Ite humiliated by the Judge's order. 
The character of the two men has shown itself. They l>oth have 
. been ■elected to higher offices. Mr. Weinbrenuer is lire same big 
hearted, fair-minded official, while Judge Kimmel in the Name prej- 
udiced official he was years ago. Elevation should broaden a man, 
ltat"**t^riat>exn^rdf%anf^his^«rt»f'' - - 

All fair minded people 'of St. Louis will condemn the actions of 
the Judge, because it is-his duty as such, to see that only the guilty 
is punished. Right and Justice Knows No Color. 

We still hope there is enough sense of right and justiee in Judge 
Kiinmer to enahlo him to see the error of his ways and change them, 
that he too, may be one of the wise exponents of good city govern- 

ing blessed by tlio influence of tall 
good woman. Thou who braved the 
terriaa stortn of wind and snow wen 
fully ispaid by the forceful sermon at 
Dr. Peck. This great sad good man 
baa gives to the Bndeavorsri a little 
'book entitled, "Vsde Hcctun," whioh 
i* indispensable to Endeavor wo rsen 
and a very valuable aaaet to every 
Catistian. Dr. Peck is n blessing, not 
only to St. .Tain'ri and tali Immediate 

conuuMnity, but to tne entire A. M. E. 
connection. Miy he. be spared many, 
many yean and continue in the good 
work of J '.lifting ai he climbs."

We are in receipt of several inquiries from some of the thoughtful 
. members of our race with regard to the fourteen year old girl who de- 
fied a mob in defense of a Negro in a ^cath Carolina town. They have 
expressed their intention of writing ihe young- Miss a letter, com- 
mending her bravery. This is right and should be encouraged. 

We realitt that most of m are inclined to let the other fellow do 
it. That is not the safe position to take. Should you see it in print,

TKXT— John 4^-lt, H a* ■* 
OOLttBK TE XT-CTirlst JaSUe came la. 
lu the world to aave ilnoara.— I Tim. 1:1*. 

This Is a lesson Of on* of the way 
aide mlnlstrlea ot Jesus. It occurred 
inrhlentally while he was on bit way 
to hit tTent preaching and teurtilag ex- 
perience at Ualllee. It waa a' bj- product 
of Ma Very busy life, yet It is one of 
the. most famous Interviews and one. of 
the best- examples of how to do per> 
sonal work that is found in the scrip- 
ture*. The larger part of the flrat year 
of Christ's ministry was spent In Ju- 
dea. Jesus did not baptise, but his 
disciple* did, doubtless for, the ssme 
reason, though in a. less degree, thnn 
Why Paul [■■■tuned to baptise convert* 
(t Cor. lilli-Lii). All but eue of the 
disciple* of Jesus were Galileans and. 
Jetus apent about a year and nine 
months of his ministry In that place. 

I. Jesus Rested (w. 44). To reach 
Galilee from Judea Jetui "mutt need* 
go through Samaria." not that there 
were not oilier ways that he might 
have traveled, but rather that It was 
worth while to go out of hia way In 
order to bring the arater of life to thla 
needful woman. Jacob's well was at 
h tHUttng of the roadway near to the 
city of Bychar. Few place* In ta# land 
save Jerusalem had so much Bible his- 
tory connected with them tOen. 12 rt; 
Joshua S :33 ; Acta 7:10; I Kings. 12 it, 
etc.). The well was originally about 
1U> feet deep and T» s feet In diameter, 
but it Imi been filled tip with arcumu- 
latlona ot rubbish so It is now only 
about 75 feet deep. Christ waa wearied 
In his work, but not of It and "eat 
thus" <by) the weil; literally, on the 
lost wall built around it. The slith 
hour was probably about midday 
There Is comfort In cuuelderMlOfi ol 
the fact that aa a man Jeana waa will- 
lug to meet this woman at bad 

It. Jesus Hold* Conversation (vv. T- 
Mk, Notice the gentle way In which 
Jesus speaks, and that he began on the 
ground of their common need, lie 
asks thla needed favor that he might 
confer a greater one. Ignoring the pre- 
judice which axlatad against the Sa- 
maritan*. Water ajas the thlnr upper- 
moat in the H-oman's ntiitd. noe did not 
grant his simple request, and her reply 
indicated that racist differences were 
a very real barrier- They binder our 
work even yet. The' surprise, perhaps 
pleasure, that a Jew should ask a favor 
of her seems to hare greatly Impressed 
the woman, end sronsed her curiosity. 
In Tars* 10 Jaaus tells th* woman tbat 
there are two things she must needs 
know: (1) the wondrous gift of Ood, 
Oat la the Holy Spirit (Luke 11 : 13 1 
Acts 2:23-381 ; It) the wonderful man, 
who had ashed of her "CHe 
drink." Had ah* known these things 
aha wariili hsrn tshH htr- 1tff-»1" "*■ 
bhg water. All that waa needful was 
simply to gsjc The Holy Spirit ts the 
living arater (John 8:63). The woman 
diiea not seen to, have comprehended 
what Jesus waa trying to. tesch. yet h* 
wss patient, and won her as a eonve 
lie told her tbat everyone who eai 


fouutalna of wealth, fame, pleasure 
carnal gratification, or even learning 

He the* tells her of the living wale! 
tv. If)) of which the drinker 
never thirst that it wouM satisfy who- 
soever drink*, and was to be evertiwt 
log (John 7:37-99). The «ne who re- 
ceives the Holy Spirit within has s
